Project Description

Plaza de la Església Cisterna, 5D, 46595 Torres Torres, Valencia

Location

The Torres Torres Arabic Baths were declared a National Monument in 1938, and are one of the three complexes of this type that have been preserved in Spain. These baths have underwent various restoration works in order to make them suitable for public visits. The first documented reference to these baths is from 1555, although it it is unlikely that they were used as baths per se at this time. The building assumes the typical layout of an Arabic bath (hammam) while inheriting, in essence, the formal structure of Roman baths, adapting them to their specific needs and their social sense of religious practice.
